Friday Photos–Places: Oregon Downtown & Coast (& stories made real by the telling)

27 Apr

There's nothing like this feeling . . .

oh sony cybershot, how I'll miss you

I have  blog post up at Bellebooks/Bell Bridge Books blog -called: “The Stories are Made Real by the Telling” – I hope you’ll stop by to read and while there check out the other wonderful posts by BB authors! And thank you all for your supportive emails, comments, updates, messages on the release of the final in the trilogy Family Graces. I so appreciate you all — more than you may ever know!

Today is the day I go with my photographer/chef friend to buy my “Good Camera” – like a kid before Christmas, I could barely sleep thinking about it -teeheehee.

I love visiting Oregon. And not just because my precious granddaughter lives there, and my son and daughter in law. But  because it is beautiful and interesting with mountains, water features, nature, beer (laugh – Asheville, NC beat out Portland, OR in beer city contest!), just as does my Western North Carolina.

Photos have their stories, too, don’t they?

So, once again, I leave you with a few photos casually taken, as I say goodbye to my Sony Cybershot – oh, my camera and I were best buddies! If it weren’t for the  malfunctioning blobs and streaks, I’d keep it and use it every so often–perhaps I will anyway.

I’ll be returning to Oregon this summer to see “Lil Boop.” If you’ve never been, then you must . . .

    Love Oregon. I used to go annually (when I was in the lumber biz–that’s where the trees is, ya know) and miss it. You’re right about the beer, which is wonderful. Portland has more breweries per capita than any other US city. The Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley is fabulous, too.

    Have a wonderful time out west, and congrats on the new camera! Oh yeah, and also on Family Graces. ;-) I’m heading over to read you post on BB’s site.

      I can’t wait to go in July — although now to see my granddaughter more than the sights! :-D

    The northwest is one area I have never been and would love to see! The coast especially. This is a great slide show!

      It’s a pretty place – almost as pretty as here *haw!*

    Beautiful, beautiful country.

    I’ve visited the USA once when I went on a visit with a friend to see her family. I was living in Africa at the time and it took three days and four planes! She lives in Raleigh, North Carolina. I was made incredibly welcome. There’s nothing like American hospitality. Hugo wants to visit the Grand Ole Opry one day and I said ‘fine as long as I get three days in The Big Apple!’

    Have fun with your new camera and let’s see the results!

      Oh, Raleigh – in the Piedmont area – we’re in the mountain area . . . but all of NC is wonderful — :-D

      I can’t wait to start using the new camera – battery is charging !
